Tonight's best bets

n "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial," 7:30 p.m. on ABC Family. Steven Spielberg's 1982 sci-fi fantasy remains one of the most beloved films of modern times, with the bug-eyed title alien character and his 7-year-old co-star, Drew Barrymore, sharing the prize for adorability. Henry Thomas stars as the little boy who bonds with the stranded alien and helps him make contact with his home planet.

n "Moonlight," 9 p.m. on CBS. Mick is in the desert searching for a missing woman when he sustains an injury. While sunlight isn't fatal to his breed of vampire, it does impede his ability to heal his wounds, so he has to seek out Beth's help.
